- Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Anything Goes Challenge at A Place to Start w/Optional Twist : My Fauna Valentine (include a critter.)
Saturday, February 5, 2022
We have a new challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create and our theme is as always "Anything Goes". The Optional Twist is Valentine Whimsy.
I chose to go with the Valentine theme but went more traditional card. I made this card for my husband using some mixed media paper I had made with my Gelli Plate and Acrylic paints.
I used this pretty heart cutting die for the card along with a heart cutting die and letters from another set. I used glossy black card stock behind the the hearts to give the card some shine.

This is my project for this month, an altered Coffee box using among other things Paper from a found Wasp Nest.
I sanded the box and added a coat of gesso and Violet Acyrlic Paint. I added the violet paint so that if I did not have enough of the nest material the violet colour would show through. I painted the trim around the lid a lighter shade of violet.
